Kyle Lowry continues to make his mark on the Toronto Raptors all-time lists.
During Friday's game against the Indiana Pacers, Lowry passed the great Vince Carter for third-most points in franchise history with a strong take to the basket in the first quarter.

The All-Star guard entered the night just nine points shy of passing Carter and achieved that feat in the first quarter, going for 10 quick points.
Carter amassed 9,420 points in 403 games with Toronto and was the franchise's all-time leading scorer when he was traded to the New Jersey Nets in 2004. Since then, he has been passed by other Raptor greats like DeMar DeRozan and Chris Bosh, and now, Lowry.

Lowry is still 853 points shy of Bosh and 3,874 points shy of passing his good friend DeRozan as the franchise's all-time scoring leader.
Just last week, Lowry passed Jose Calderon as the Raptors' all-time assists leader. He is also already the franchise's all-time leader in 3-pointers made and steals.
In his eight seasons with the Raptors, Lowry has averaged 17.5 points per game. This season, the 14-year veteran is averaging 19.7 points per game - his best since 2016-17 - to go with 7.3 assists per game, earning him is sixth-consecutive All-Star bid.
